A collection of photo’s from my recent road trip around the West Coast of Scotland. Having lived in Northern England all of my life, I can’t believe it took me so long to discover the beauty of Scotland. It has some of the best scenery and beaches I have found anywhere in Great Britain.
Highlights include chasing the The Jacobite Steam train through the Scottish highlands, spending a couple of nights in the middle of nowhere on the remote Isle of Skye, having haggis for breakfast most mornings and visiting the beach and Calgary Art in Nature on the Isle of Mull.
There’s a couple of photos from Yorkshire in this photo set too, as we had a few days there before our two weeks in Scotland.
The only disappointment from the trip would be the weather and the lack of whales on our whale watching trip!
